    Never mind. If I'd just shut up and keep looking I wouldn't have to ask these things!

    Okay, now that I've got the data entered (for once I'm glad I don't have the cellar of my dreams!), I like it! The graphs are cool; looks like I'd better like Virginias...

    The only negative for me is that the typeface and layout are a bit rough on my aging eyeballs.

    Correct. Once you have some "finished" tins, i.e. with both OPEN and FINISH dates (make a guess for the last few tins if needed) - then your actual consumption can be figured out and will show on the cellar summary as an estimated lifespan. Over time as you mark off containers as finished, it will learn and get more accurate. Note that GIVEN tins are ignored in the usage calculation, since you didn't smoke it.

    The cellar usage projection chart is based on your target dates, you have to define them as such for each container. At least for the "favorite" blends, its worth the effort to plan your next acquisition
    When you add new tins you can start using the Target Date feature going forward.

    A big issue was fitting all that data on screen without going too far to the right or wrapping too many lines per record. The type face and font was selected for basic legibility and small size. You can increase the browser font size but it will throw the screen formatting out of whack.

    There is still quite a lot of "undefined" baccy types/descriptions, it will be updated over time (with some volunteers helping).

    Well if its 143 lbs of the same blend, just type it in once and select 1,000 tins, and it will create them automatically

    One thing I really like is that you can actually add "my blends" so that you don't have any "generic generic" in your cellar. I hated that.

    True, true! And the "age" of a tin is correctly calculated here - from TIN DATE to OPEN DATE. On the other site it would go from tin date to current date, and keep going even after it was opened (granted baccy does continue to age but its wrong).

    Note that sometimes the import process can't recognize the blend name, in that case it will call it GENERIC GENERIC and move on. Some spellings or hypenations may be different, I think I covered most of the possible syntax issues but its likely some blends won't be recognized coming over.

    When does it start doing this? I finished 2 tins in the last week that I added to give it a frame of reference.

    Okay, you persuaded me.

    But I made a very silly mistake. I included a space in my Log In Name so now the url for my cellar doesn't work.

    Would you mind changing it for me, please?

    The site looks great! I never got into the old one, but I signed up for this, despite my meager "cellar". Great work!

    On the Finished tins, be sure that the OPEN and FINISH dates are correct (they may default to today) or at least a good guess. This gives it a time frame to calculate the days/oz which will then be applied to the contents of your cellar. The imported list lacks the OPENED date so it may default to the current date. Going forward, as you mark tins OPEN and FINISHED, it will pick up the correct usage calculations.

    Oh yes, the current year is 2010 so be sure you use the right year if you opened a tin last Dec

    Thanks RJpuffs!

    Wow, somebody has already added a blend from my local tobacconist. Is it anyone here?

    One thing I did notice is that when I uploaded my cellar list it took all my PA, regular and "Choice Blend" and bunched them all together as regular PA. No biggie though.
